Yes, that is the moment when release team needs to have copy of the
planned english announcement and release notes in order to translate

With current "members", we would have :

Martin Loschwitz and Bernhard Walle = German announcements
Luis Miguel Garcia = Spanish announcements
François Le Clainche = French announcements
Voicu Liviu = Hebrew / Romanian announcements :)

By announcements, I mean original Olivier's announcement translation 
and post on various news web site for each languages.

At the same time, they send me copy of the announcement so I can 
update err, xfce web site mirror ;) with english, 
spanish and french announcements, since there is no german version 
available yet.

Maybe Allen Chen will want to translate it to chinese ?

Other english announcements needed (OSnews...). How does those ?

Package maintainers have to send me (I mean, at least by posting on the
list :) urls of their packages in order for me to update the web site.
Same thing for updated SF mirrors.

And what about using xfce-announce to talk about that ?

My 2 cents.
